Just wrapped up a morning workshop running some curious educators through the concepts behind using sketchnoting as a teaching tool! I drew up these speedy flipchart sheets the day before so that I would have something to refer them to, breaking everything apart into 5 minute segments. It was an overview-type presentation, so that they would feel more familiar with terms and concepts. All of them had heard of the idea of visual notetaking as a tool for learners, but they didn’t know how to introduce it in a classroom setting. There were about twelve educators at the meeting. I carried along a lightweight easel in and set it up within seconds, and then things got rolling. It was exciting to see how interested they were, and every time I broke for Q and A they asked such super questions. Later I gave them a quick “scribble birds” lesson, not my idea but it came to me because they wanted direct ideas as to how to get non-drawers drawing. “Scribble birds” involves making a scribble-design and then adding a beak, an eye, and little bird feet. Works every time! Try it! After the meeting I enjoyed a tour of the art room and an informal chat with some of the teachers working with high school age kids downtown. Inspiring start to a great day.
